Protown BMX Clinics
Can you imagine being a basketball player and having the opportunity to train and practice with NBA’s own Lebron? What about a football athlete and throwing passes or asking advice from NFL Superstar Cam Newton? Well with the Protown BMX Clinic thats exactly what we are doing. You will be able to work together with various Top BMX Freestyle riders and be right in the middle of the action. Don’t Miss OUT!!!
Who we are:
We are a Professional Team of BMX Freestyle Riders that want to encourage, educate and help progress current riders and individuals new to the sport.
What it is:
It is a bike clinic for people of all ages, who may be new to BMX Freestyle that want help with getting started, ramps or for experienced riders that want help taking their riding to the next level!!
What we do:
We offer a 6 week clinic that will support your bike riding skills and greatly enhance your abilities. We will have coaching that will cater to each riders ability, specifically. You will be able to ask the instructors questions and get help with specific tricks. We will have groups, so participants will meet others with similar skills/age and begin to positively motivate each other. We will offer safety education, bike maintenance, many how to’s and trick tips including using the different ramps, with general skate park etiquette, spread out between the different clinics. We will also educate on how contests work, how to put a run together including flow and trick difficulty, and have a mini clinic contest on the 6th week with prizes and awards. We keep if FUN, encouraging every rider with every skill level to “have fun and learn” Our clinic supports setting goals, conquering fears and gaining confidence that riders can continue throughout their lives, both, on and off their bikes!!
What is needed:
We need a participant, a bike, and a willingness to learn/try. Participants can range is age, but they need to be able to ride a bike without training wheels, as they won’t roll on the ramps. We cater to ALL ages and YES, we can teach an old dog new tricks!! Any bike will do for clinic, but prefer a BMX type bike with 2 pegs on 1 side, rear wheel is a “freewheel” so rider can pedal backwards and rear hand brakes. We have extra bikes, pegs and helmets available to use. So PLEASE, don’t feel as though you have to go out and buy all this stuff yet. We will see how the participant does with the clinics and can always upgrade from there. Remember, we are Pros, and although BMX bikes have evolved to tailored machines, we learned on some of the basic bikes of our day.
